During this conference we aim to inspire and challenge thinking and to provide practical approaches for implementation.

Keynote : Asking scientific questions – it’s trickier than you think! with Tina Whittaker (Co-Lead, Science Across the City)

Asking scientific questions – it’s trickier than you think!” When do your pupils know they have a scientific question worth investigating? It’s trickier than we think and asking and building better questions is an art worth honing. This keynote will showcase how primary pupils can be supported to improve their scientific question asking.

In partnership with Severn Training & Schools Alliance and Telford & Wrekin Council’s School Improvement Service.
